When We Last Left

…Oconomowoc has a splendid public library, perhaps they can help you…

… Connie and Ace’s Wisconsin expedition is morphing into something more.

“Get rid of that slave woman and her son”

question markThe rooms natural light is short and outside noises are squelched by heavy drapery, yet there is single shaft of light, seemingly without origin, streaming onto a large book. HOLY BIBLE,” Constance brushes the dust away from the yellowed pages. “There is a passage underlined Genesis 21: 10, and Sarah said to Abraham, “Get rid of that slave woman and her son, for that slave woman’s son will never share the inheritance with my son Isaac.”

“The story of Isaac and Ishmael, huummm, I wonder if she was troubled by the fact that Mr. Valentine left his stepchildren, hers by Mr. Armour, out of his will.” this distant relative and the whole House of Armour is well acquainted with the financial ins and outs of the considerable estate dealings of both men, with Mary Lester as a common wife.

“You would know about that sordid mess, but there are some old documents rolled up next to the Bible binding, having the feel of animal skin,” she opens the fragile papers, sealed with gold and scented with perfume. “I couldn’t read this if my life depended on it.”

“Why isn’t it covered in dust like everything else… and what happened to that light?” Ace points the obvious, just in case no one else sees the same things.

“Where can I take this to be read maybe Greek or Hebrew, I’m guessing?” she taps into Armour’s local knowledge.

“I live back in Wauwatosa, but I know Oconomowoc has a splendid public library, perhaps they can help you.”

After checking out the rest of the main house, they go down by the boathouse,Valentine Estate cross the Valentine Bridge to Valentine Island and get a close up view of the lake. The water is steadily reclaiming its liquid form, the ice, once a foot or more thick, retreating rapidly from shore.

But, as sure as time passes, things must change and a house that was built 50 years ago, before modern mechanicals, it will be torn down and replaced by a dozen inferiorly framed substitutions.

…Of all the civilizations that      digests, the concepts developed by the people of the Third Planet most closely captures the meaning of life…

Works of fiction and nonfiction are produced, many of which come from the Milky Way galaxy, a hotbed of advanced development. Farther from the galloping point of Creation, the stars are more stable, conducive to sentient life.

Particular attention is paid to binary system near a supernova AND the third planet orbiting one particular star. The former has developed the means to explore other worlds, including the latter. The latter does not. There is no crime in the inequity, but possible interaction poses a new set of problems.

Such attention may not be warranted had not     witness to the first of similar interaction between intelligent life, on the outer boundary of Creation. One particular species takes undo advantage of its superiority. The result upsets the natural order. That is not to be repeated.

It is not good for one to have great advantage over another.

⃝     puts an end to an expedition to the Third Planet, on the Fourth Planet, in the middle of the Milky Way galaxy. Problem solved.

⃝     has become fascinated with the Third Planet. No more interesting a race exists among the galaxies. The literature produced there is uncommon. The depth of human understanding, the passion put into words is without parallel. Of all that ⃝     digests, the concepts developed by these people most closely captures the meaning of life.

A man called Jesus walks the Third Planet and captures the essence of the Creator. He is writing His own Library of Life. He courts certain and all would-be followers. Those and many other followers are devoted to this man of great wisdom. Jesus is terminated by people who fear his claims of parental connection to the Creator. His legacy does not die. His closest confidants produce literature named The Holy Bible.      does treasure this historical record of the people the Creator calls his children. Children of the Creator are to be cultivated.

We have watched these children with keen interest. The propagation of ideas multiplies with the population. Ideas beget philosophies. Differing philosophies cause strife, which produce clashes. Clashes are resolved. Boundaries are established. Boundaries are useful.
